Format for Bibliography
When typing out the good copy of your bibliography remember these points:
- Your list of citations is organized alphabetically by author’s last name. If there is no author, use the title (of book, article, or website).
- All citations must be double-spaced. If your citation runs longer than one line, then indent the second line and all following lines.
- If there is more than one city of publication listed, use the first one; also you do not need to put in words like “Company”, “Inc.,” and “Ltd.”
- Book and website titles should be underlined or italicized.
- The title at the top should be Works Consulted or Bibliography.
